  • is a visit which is worth when driving through the small town. The church building is one of the older churches in all Finland - and in addition to Pielpajärvi near Inari - main page. The clean wood construction is easily recognizable because it is not covered. The Church roof reminds to a ship and therefore the knowledge of the carpenters. Under the wooden floor are several corpses, including a Bishop of earlier years. Unfortunately, tourists at the ruins have wrong so that the floorboards are now screwed. Please take care to this unique church space. Amazing acoustics in the old church. We sang a brief song, which enjoyed the staff working in the House of the parish of Sodankylä and randomly arriving guests to 2.

  • Learn a little about the history of this old church and sit inside. You feel like in a previous time offset. So if you come, be sure look at. The new Church is not so spectacular, unfortunately.
